I was walking from Wildcat at Frontier City too Silver Bullet. This was a few days after the big Six Flags announcement So the news was fresh. There was a group of kids behind me who also just got off Wildcat and were heading to Silver Bullet.
I overheard in the conversation the kids were talking about theme parks and roller coasters.
One kid said to the other kid "well you need to go too a Six Flags park when you have a chance".
I turned around and joined into their conversation and said "You are at a Six Flags park."
Apparently the kids heard about the news and one of them laughed and another kid said "He is right".
Apparently the joke is that they're the only people on the ride and they didn't choose the front or back. It took me scrolling through all of the Instagram comments to "get" it, which means it's just a bit too high-brow.
So in 2016, I took two of my friends to Carowinds. We had a great time, one of them even worked up the courage to ride Fury with me as his first roller coaster ever— and later the other rode Afterburn with me. After the visit I asked them why they hadn’t ridden Intimidator. Their response, “It’s taller than the Fury!” And I nearly laughed, as I explained to them that Intimidator was nearly 100 feet shorter than Fury.
Oh yeah, and on a later visit I walked along the path that runs under Nighthawk. A GP proclaimed as he exited Nighthawk, “That’s the best roller coaster I’ve ever ridden!” I began laughing, but my group shut me up.
